MANIC STREET PREACHERS, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS and STEREOPHONICS have all been approached to contribute to a new Welsh music awards event – the WRITS.

Cardiff firm Whitbread Walker have held talks with all three bands, with a view to having them perform at the ceremony.

The awards are due to be held at Cardiff International Arena on Tuesday, November 27. Media sponsors have already been booked for the evening, which is being billed as the biggest music event that Wales has ever seen.

Organiser Mark Furnival said: “We are extremely excited and proud to be working on such a prestigious event.

“Producing a show which will equal the Brits in London will be an

outstanding achievement – not just for us as an organisation, but for Wales

as a whole.”

Categories lined up for the first WRIT Awards include Best Welsh Producer, Best Welsh Language Act, the 20th Century Welsh Roots Award.
